Some Of The Technologies We Use

Colour Modelling with Archetypes
 - Always more than one way to model a problem
 - How do you know which is the best model to use?
 - Colours represent archetypes that tell you what to do
 - Little building blocks you use again and again
 - A simple, systematic way to build object models across all domains [more]

Project Knowledge Management System
 - All project artifacts published and linked
 - Minutes, memos, models, source code, inspection logs, presentations, etc.
 - Fully traceable
 - Can click from a requirement to the model, to source code, to inspection log for that code, to what build it's in, to defects against it, and so on [more]

Feature Driven Development (FDD)
 - Working results every two weeks or less
 - Very small blocks of client-valued function called features
 - Detailed planning and measurement guidance
 - Tracks and reports with amazing accuracy
 - Detailed tracking within a project, and higher-level summaries for clients and management, all in business terms
 - Provides a way to know within the first 10% of a project, if the plan and estimate are sound [more]
